Plant people: any idea what those tentacle things are coming out of my succulent? They’re on the stem and under a couple leaves. They’re not sharp and I’ve never seen them before (I’ve had this plant for over a year). It’s freaky!
They’re little baby roots! I’m not entirely sure why they’re growing that high up, but I know they’re not harmful.
that would be a good place to cut the stem and root out a new plant. the remaining stem will sprout new top(s). i believe that sometimes happens when the plant gets pretty tall and is trying to spread out.
We made a stop at Atlanta Botanical Garden to meet up with Ron Determann. Mason and I got to go behind-the-scenes to the propagation areas. This photo set shows: -Sarracenia purpurea ssp. burkii f. luteola -Sarracenia purpurea ssp. burkii -Sarracenia leucophylla Sumter County, GA -Sarracenia rubra “Georgia Fall Line Sand Hill” Taylor County, GA -S. alabamensis -S. oreophila -S. oreophila -S. rubra “Georgia Fall Line Sand Hill” -S. purpurea ssp. montana -S. ‘Adrian Slack’
My carnivorous plant collection is doing well! It’s been so long since I’ve posted about them so I thought I would give an update! The flytraps are filling out nicely and my D. filiformis is getting huge! I’m currently rooting some of the filiformis - they’ve just started to take root! I’ll post some pictures when they get bigger.
